Walk to Remember 2012

This year was my first year at the Walk to Remember IE.  It was also, of course, Blankets for Brianna's first year and we even had the opportunity to have a booth at the event to promote the charity.

Thanks to Pinterest for most of the ideas for the decorations. I made the banner with dictionary pages (hey, words are in style right) and the old fashioned scissors and glue.  I think it turned out pretty good. We displayed a bunch of different types of blankets that we have received and even had a handout on how to make different types of fleece tied blankets.

 The brown box was also courtesy of Pinterest. Its a diaper box covered in fabric. LOVE IT!
 I also made Pink and Blue ribbons for anyone to wear symbolizing Pregnancy and Infant Loss.

Here is some angel wings that were made in honor of our angel babadfies by a support group I attend called Face 2 Face. Brianna is at the top... 

Now into the walkers....

I was busy the weeks leading up to the Walk to Remember. I wanted our booth to be perfect to make my daughter proud, and I thought it turned out perfect, but now thinking back, I am sure she would have been just as happy having the special people there who came to support her and walk for her and remember her. We will definitely be back next year. It was an awesome event and so much time and work goes into it by the Walk to Remember IE organization. It was a huge success and I can't wait til next year... Who knows who else will be walking with us *wink*wink*
